@banderson - you don't understand the abortion supporters. Getting an abortion is not equivalent to spilling popcorn, because spilling popcorn is universally recognized as a mistake that should naturally cause some embarrassment, however minor. The only mistake in the process of abortion, to those who support it, is that the couple failed to use protection prior to conception, and that's not deserving of embarrassment either, because surely they were prevented from knowing about birth control by "those who lived during biblical times." And only men who lived in biblical times, because apparently all women support abortion, according to people like HVH.

Getting an abortion to these folks is more like choosing between buttered or unbuttered popcorn. No, because that may still involve a judgment about the healthiness of that food choice. Maybe more like choosing between red or green popcorn for a string popcorn decoration. No mistake, no judgment, no embarrassment.

You are right, of course, that proponents of legal abortion have shamelessly trivialized the taking of innocent human life to a morally inconsequential health care choice.

Bored to the point of THIS!

Hey, another politician trying to make government bigger. Senator Lee... you can't have it both ways! You call for smaller government, yet propose an oversite situation that will add to the government's involvement. I did not realize Senator Lee was a 'closet' democrat.
